Back To School

2015_09_06IMG_9089 When I opened the Schoolhouse DSP from the Stampin Up catalog I knew I was going to use the ABC sheet and make back to school cards.  Our whole adult family loves back to school time because that means shopping for cool school supplies. I mean you are never too old for paper, pens, clip boards, Sharpies, staplers etc or are you? I also knew that I wanted to use the Stampin Up For the Teacher stamp set that I ordered over 3 years ago and never used.

So I set out to make a card for my friend that is a dedicated 1st grade teacher.  I messed around with the stamp set and could not come up with a design so I googled and blogged and alas I found the cute idea for the clip board and pencil on a fellow demonstrators -Pink Buckaroo, blog. I combined her layout and was able to use my For The Teacher stampset.  The fun feature for the clipboard is that I used the silver foil paper from Stampin Up and the Scalloped Tag Topper #133324. For the pencil I used the Handpicked Framelits #137361.  Thanks for the inspiration Pink Buckaroo.

Happy New Year (2012-2013)

 No I am not crazy, I decided to think outside the stamp with this card and make a card for the New School Year! Today my baby boy is starting his Junior Year of High School and I wanted to make a card for my dear friend Lisa who is the hardest working teacher I know. I saw this card awhile back and knew I wanted to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) it and add a few things to make it my own. Once I finished it I thought I might as well use up the gingham DSP from the yummy Orchard Harvest DSP #126895 (Holiday Catalog) and the Perfectly Preserved Stamp set# 126692 and make cards to send to my friends and family with school age kids.  I even pulled out my stamp -a -ma-jig #101049  to perfectly align the apples and the stems.

The background paper was textured with the wood grain folder #127821 on the core’dinations in gumball green #127847 and the Stampin Sanding System #129368.
